LinkedIn has announced to have open sourced two new tools to assist engineers in automating the investigation of broken hosts and services: Fossor and Ascii Etch.

Fossor (Latin for gravedigger) is a Python tool, while Ascii Etch, another Python library, outputs information gleaned from Fossor in ascii-character graphs.

Python tool- Fossor’s design splits the two components of the program, the engine and plugins, to reduce the incidence of serious bugs. Whereas, Ascii Etch was originally created to draw the results from running Fossor.
